YES, this by @hbfleishman "Being busy isn’t the same as being effective." For much of my career I've felt guilty for taking time off, but doing so is the best way, IMHO, to stay excited and be better. Let’s Stop Glorifying People for Never Taking Time Off http://bit.ly/2Onm0T3

I'm reading Fernando Pessoa's "The Book of Disquiet" and it's long, strange and beautiful: "The entire life of the human soul is mere motions in the shadows. We live in a twilight of consciousness, never in accord with whom we are or think we are. Everyone harbours some kind of vanity, and there’s an error whose magnitude we can’t know. We’re something that goes on during the show’s intermission; sometimes, through certain doors, we catch a glimpse of what may be no more than scenery. The world is one big confusion, like voices in the night."

I try to read at least a few books every year. In fact, I'm reading one now, a 1962 novel by Argentian writer Manuel Mujica Láinez, titled Bomarzo. Why Do Americans Read so Few Books in Translation? | Literary Hub http://bit.ly/2vzJFrI
